Questions (Not) By Casper #4
Random Twitter Q&A
March 5, 2023

Who doesn’t love to answer random questions from strangers? I know I do. This brings back so many memories of the old MySpace survey days. I used to have a guy, Casper, who asked plenty of questions every day on Twitter. I don’t have him anymore, but luckily for me, others have stepped up to fill the void. It’s Questions (Not) By Casper and it all starts now.

What was your favorite band or artist when you were in high school?

When I was in high school, my favorite musicians to listen to were Alice Cooper and Waylon Jennings. And now, I’m an old (middle-aged) man and my favorite artists to listen to are still Alice Cooper & Waylon Jennings. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it and good music is forever.

Name a TV series that was canceled that you wish wasn’t.

Roseanne. Yeah, the Conners is allegedly a continuation of Roseanne’s show, but without the Domestic Goddess in the house, it’s not nearly as good and lacking. Also, Roseanne got a raw deal and was screwed over by her former “castmates” and ABC, which thoroughly sucks.

Who is the greatest Nelson of all time?

Are we talking about Major Anthony Nelson from I Dream of Jeannie? Are we talking about the great stalwart of 70s game shows, Charles Nelson Reilly? Maybe Willie Nelson? Maybe Ozzie & Harriet and their entire family of Nelsons, including the grandsons, the blonde-haired twins who can’t live without your love & affection? Let’s go with legendary cowboy and pro wrestler Nelson Royal. He’s an NC guy and owned a ranch. You can’t get much greater than that. So, Nelson Royal, it is, and there you go.

What’s a popular TV show that everyone loved but you never did?

I could probably just say anything on television today because I’ve pretty much given up watching TV, except for the occasional wrestling show, and have little use for 98% of the programs on TV these days. But I guess this question wants a real answer, right? How about The Voice? It’s an American Idol ripoff and compared to Idol, at least in the early days, comes across as a cheap parody. Idol sucks now as well, but to me, The Voice was never watchable or listenable as the case may be. I know some people like it. I don’t.

On a scale of 1-10, how much do you miss President Trump?

A 10. President Trump wasn’t perfect. He’s thin-skinned, an egomaniac, and every time he went on Twitter or made a speech, I would cringe at what might be coming out of his mouth, BUT he was a good President. While he was the President, we had record unemployment, low inflation, no new wars, and huge drops in illegal immigration, and our nation was in a much better place. Trump ran his office like a business instead of an entitlement factory. Everything was better and that was with him having to fight every inch of the way for anything because he was “mean” and didn’t play the favorites that the Dems seem to love to do. Every time that the pedophile dementia patient lies and mumbles his way through an appearance, I feel sick to my stomach and feel the approach of an incredible pending doom. Trump was a stern father in that he didn’t care about being nice, but was more concerned about being right and doing what needed to be done because he truly loved and cares for this nation and wants it to be better for everyone. Too bad that doesn’t exist in Washington anymore. Now they just want to control us and make everyone happy, damn the consequences. We need Trump back. FJB!

What candy best describes Easter?

It’s either the nasty-ass Peeps or jelly beans. I’ll go with the Jelly beans.

Pepperoni isn’t available, what topping are you adding to your pizza?

Meat! If I don’t have pepperoni, then let’s go with ham, sausage, hamburger, bacon, or any other kind of meat that is available. I love my meat!

If you saw Elon Musk on the street, what would you say to him?

Nothing. I don’t talk to people on the street if I don’t already know them personally or can avoid it. If I have to acknowledge him, it’d just be a nod and a “How you doing?” as I walk on by.

What’s a bad description of what you do for work?

I provided a means for spiritual insight and a loss of inhibitions to the mass public.

Name your favorite Adam Sandler movie.

I’m probably going to have to go with The Longest Yard. I like most of his movies and The Water Boy especially always makes me crack up, but with all the star power and big names involved, The Longest Yard is the one that best shows Sandler as a legit movie star and real box-office attraction.

If Satan was designing your room in hell, what’s one thing you KNOW he’s putting in your room?

A bunch of people standing in front of a cash register I’m forced to run saying, “if it doesn’t scan, it’s free, right?”, followed by “Working hard or hardly working!” and then talking (screaming) to someone on their cell phones and ignoring any and everything I may say or try to say to them. Yeah, he’ll be putting “customers” in my hell room. Oy vey!

Who is the dumbest Member of Congress?

There are so many to choose from, it’s hard to pick just one idiot from the masses, but I’ll try. How about Congressman Hank Johnson (D-GA) who uttered this gem while talking about the island of Guam? ”My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.” Yeah, he’s an absolute idiot!

What’s your favorite video game character?

I’m not a video game person so let’s just keep it simple. Ms. Pac-Man.

Name one movie you think should have a sequel.

Mallrats. I know that Kevin Smith has been trying to get it worked out and made for years, but hasn’t been able to work everything out as of yet. But I do want to see it happen and hopefully one day, it will.

What’s a song that mentions flowers or other plants?

You Don’t Bring Me Flowers by Barbra Streisand & Neil Diamond.

How do you keep the crows from pulling up the corn?

Shoot them.

Most young people now watch TV with subtitles on. Why?

Because most attention spans these days are not sufficient enough to pay attention and listen to what’s being said. Why listen to the conversation on the TV screen when you’re too busy being on the phone, talking to someone in the room, checking out social media, eating, and painting your toenails all at the same time? That requires effort. The occasional glance at the words on the screen, not quite so much.

How long is a quickie?

As long as it needs to be.

And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions about anything are welcome and appreciated. And with that, I’m wrapping this up for now. Time to go find some breakfast. Take care and be well my friends, and I’ll see you on the other side.
